BIFA launches Young Freight Forwarders Network

May 28, 2019
The British International Freight Association (BIFA), the trade association for UK freight forwarding and logistics companies, has launched a new networking group - the BIFA Young Forwarders Network (YFN) - aimed at supporting individuals that have recently joined the sector.

Networking at the BIFA Young Forwarders eventThe launch event - held at Harlequins Rugby Club in Twickenham, West London - was co-hosted by Outsource, part of the Seetec Group and timed to link with the 12th National Apprenticeship Week (NAW 2019), which concluded on 8 March.

Carl Hobbis, BIFA’s Training Development Manager said, “The idea of the YFN is to create several regional networking groups, run by young forwarders and designed to help early talent and young BIFA members develop their knowledge and professional skills, but in a more social environment.”

Nichola Hay, Director Outsource added, “Outsource is supporting BIFA to make these events happen. This is a major step forward for the industry in developing its future freight forwarding ambassadors and leaders. Through these networks, young people will improve their knowledge of the sector and trends, as well as build their skill set and learn from others.”

A further event planned to launch the BIFA YFN regional group in the north west of England was due to take place at Alderley Edge in Cheshire on 11 April.
